A look back at Day 4

INDIANAPOLIS — The 2011 NFL Scouting Combine is flying by. Four days are now in the books, with just two days left on the field to get a look at the defensive players. That starts on Monday with defensive linemen and linebackers.

But the highlight of the combine for many is Day 4, when the skill position players take the field. Since the lights are still on at Lucas Oil Stadium, let’s take a look back at what we saw, learned and heard on Sunday:

  • Georgia WR A.J. Green, the consensus top receiver in the draft, said after the workouts he was impressed by Locker.
  • Alabama WR Julio Jones did very well for himself in several tests and ran faster than some might have expected. We have to wonder if Jones makes it past the Rams at No. 14.
  • The marquee running back in this year’s draft class — Alabama’s Mark Ingram — ran a 4.62 40, which didn’t really seem to surprise anyone.
  • Virginia Tech’s Tyrod Taylor was officially the fastest QB at the Combine.
  • Auburn DT Nick Fairley was asked by reporters about his work ethic: “I don’t think I took plays off. I think I play the game as it should be played. I play with a high motor.”
  • No surprise here: The part of Combine prospects dread the most is the medical testing.
